Some Flower Pictures!

Unfortunatley I don't know anything about gardening, but thankfully my husband has a green thumb. Here are some pics of the flowers we have in our garden this year. Maybe someone could tell me what they are!!

(Okay, I do know the lilies and the bleeding heart, but thats it! lol)

The blue/purple tall columnar flowers.

We went to run an errand today and passed by a house that has amazing Delphiniums right by the road. I'm seriously considering walking up there, introducing myself and saying "wanna trade" or "may I take a cutting?"

Oh okay!! They are beautiful, and SO tall. We have those dark ones in the picture and some very light blue ones as well. I love them!

It's funny because over the winter the dogs dug up some bulbs and everything in our garden changed and was moved. The delphiniums are now scattered through the lilies. But it all looks pretty anyway!

The top pink one looks like it could be in the primulus family but hard to tell from that pic. Then of course is the Iris and lilies and delphinium. I have that colour and a white one. Love them. they need to be staked if they get too tall and start falling. Celosia, Bleeding Heart and more Lilies. Neat.
